“Strategic position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Shamai Suites is located in a strategic position, 15 minutes walk to the Old Town, located in the heart of a very pleasant "movida" area rich of restaurants and pubs, but in a quiet place. Rooms well equiped and comfortables, young staff very helpful. We will come back again.

It has a good location, near the center it the city and close to a lot of attractions. The staff was great they were attentive and caring about any issues. The bathroom could have been cleaner as could the some of the rest of the room.

positive: great staff, very friendly and helpful. great location right next to ben yehuda and hillel.
can do better: tv did not work, bathroom was not in good shape.
i also had a very hard time finding the phone to get in touch with the staff prior to my arrival. I had questions b/c i did not find info regarding parking location and rate in booking.con

Aircon was GREAT, late June, you needed it! The staff were soooo helpful, taxis, directions, any minor issues in the room were dealt with v efficiently, I actually believe we got MORE than we paid for. 10-15 mins easy walk to the old city. Def stay here again.

All reception staff are very friendly and welcoming, providing maps, information and any assistance required.
Ben (at reception) is very knowledgable, helpful, provided is info and arranged our transfer from Jerusalem to TLV airport.

Room 62 (Deluxe Suite on the top floor 6) is a studio apartment with a kitchenette containing microwave oven, crockery and cutlery, minibar fridge, bar table, stoles, sofa with roll out bed, flat screen TV, coffee table, arm chair and 2 single beds joined to make one larger bed.

This bed is so comfortable that you will have perfect sleep.
There is also a narrow balcony that wraps around the entire apartment, giving you good views of Jerusalem.

One complementary bottle of water is provided on check-in.

Wifi is complementary and quiet fast.

The hotel is perfectly located in the City Centre, and is less than a five minute walk to just about all bars, restaurants, tram line, buses and many supermarkets.
Jaffa and New Gates, in the old city, are an easy 15 minute walk away, via Jaffa street (following the tram line).

Room Tip: Higher floor room provides a good view.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shamai Suites. Situated close the Jaffa Road for the light railway, a 10 minute walk to the Jaffa Gate and the Old City, it was lose to most places of interest, or a short bus ride away. The room was very comfortable, we'll decorated and furnished. The staff were extremely helpful and we're always on hand if required. Also, close to all amenities including markets, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, shops, etc.

Very much enjoyed my stay at Shammai Suites. The rooms are immaculate. Very well located. Can walk everywhere. Restaurants, Shuk, Old City, all very close by.
If you have or need a car leave it a home. Impossible to find parking and the most reasonable parking is too much for a 3 day stay or more.

Room Tip: The larger suite is very bright with a wrap around porch.
